NZtechfreak: The GSMArena S4 Vs One piece is interesting - Samsung have added an Adobe RGB screen mode. With that and the 441 PPI there is literally no downside to AMOLED. Better blacks, better contrast, better viewing angles (FWIW), better sunlight legibility AND accurate colour temperature? As far as screens go for 2013 that looks like game over to me.

Camera also beating out the One, even in low light (which is what I kinda expected, seems few people paid any attention to the improved aperture in the S4, F/2.2 Vs F/2.6 in last years Samsung models).


NZTF whats your thoughts on the Snapdragon v Exynos, the Octa sounds attractive but is it?

Looks like we are getting Snapdragon so just need to understand the differances

Not sure we are only getting the snapdragon as the exynos supports LTE too.

Looking on sammobile it seems the Snapdragon will be to Europe and also Australia so, yes, you could be right but looks like the I9400 is going to the states?

I9400? I think you meant to say I9500?

The SoC supporting LTE does not mean the hardware for the corresponding basebands is there, at least that is my understanding.

Good price, I could get a spare battery and 64G SD card for it with the savings.

so hide the plastic with a plastic case ;)

to be honest the plastic is fine why does it need to be made of metal??? 

the One is certainly a nice phone but I want a good phone not a good looking one.

I'd prefer the Exynos Octa 5 CPU over the Snapdragon variant if the former supports LTE connectivity as well.

I see the cyanogen Mod team have said they aren't interested in supporting another Exynos device and whilst I don't usually use CM it isn't an issue.

I liek the idea of 8 core's but don't really understand why they would do it, have read its going to be due to supply issues but who knows.
